The Adelaide Pub

Now that I’m settled into the new flat (mostly), I think it’s time to return to the pub reviews! My last pub review was The Green, located in Shepherd’s Bush. And today’s 034featured pub is also from Shepherd’s Bush. The Adelaide is a quaint pub and according to their website, it was refurbished in 2008. I hadn’t been to it before 2008 so I can only assume it looks better. I liked that it was clean. So many pubs can be a bit untidy and that puts me off. I’m not a neat freak, but I don’t like scraps of food on the tables. That grosses me out.

If my memory serves me correctly, I visited this pub on a warm summer day during Wimbledon. Some of you may question how I can remember this. I snapped this photo during my visit.


We settled down at a table for a pint and shared a grilled vegetable, hummus, and feta sandwich. Wimbledon was on the telly and there were a few patrons watching it with 067us. The atmosphere was completely laid back. The bartenders were quiet, but friendly. There wasn’t a lot of chit chat occurring around us and I think this would be a good pub to go to during the day if you wanted to read or get some work done. I wonder if it’s that relaxed at night. Depending on my mood, that could be good or bad. But during the day, I prefer quiet afternoons in a pub.

Over all, this pub is decent. There’s not much to rave about and there’s not much to criticize. If you are in the area, go ahead and pop in for a pint. However, this is not a pub to go out of your way for. I give it three stars.

Now I’m off to visit more pubs!

    Hmmm….mulled wine might have to be something that I consider. I have never had it but it sounds better than beer to me. Nice review, TBM. 🙂

    If I happen to find myself in Shepherd’s Bush, I would visit this pub for that sandwich, the space, and the quietness!
